This looks like a working boat--maybe a fishing boat--

Thanks, Jenn - I'm thinking a specialised type of dredger - going by what looks like large suction hoses on view, though far from certain. Smile

Just had a thought about the type of boat this is - maybe Jenn is right, and those hoses are for vacuuming up small fish, like sardines. I have never seen that type of fishing boat before - anyone know for sure?
Just had another thought - I did - I searched the name of the ship on the web. It is a Hopper Dredger, flies the Cyprus flag, and if you click the link, you can even see its current position, and a lot more additional info. https://www.vesselfinder.com/vessels/FREEWAY-IMO-9691682-MMSI-212368000

A well composed, taken and interesting image of this Hopper Dredger, Tom.
An interesting link, too.
